I live in South Tonbridge with my husband and 2 girls, born 1997 and 1999. Both attending University. I am 10 minutes walk from the Mainline Station and 15 minutes to the town centre. I have a large garden with great play equipment, so the children will have plenty of room to run around. I also have a playroom with of resources for the children to play with.
I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and a member of Morton Michel Insurance. My last Ofsted Inspection (November 2018) was graded a “GOOD”. My husband, 2 daughters and I are all CRB/DBS checked. I offer good quality affordable childcare.
Before becoming a Registered Childminder, I worked at St Stephen's Primary School for 8 years. 5 years was Senior Midday Supervisor. 4 years Manager of the Breakfast and Afterschool Club and have had lots of training dealing with children. I have been a Childminder since January 2011. I have 1 Assistant that works with me, working 3/4 days and is DBS Checked.
